Boulle Dresser
This particular Boulle dresser is quite unusual. First, it has one long narrow drawer below the marble top. The front corners of the marble top protrude outward which gives a finer quality to the piece. Two cupboard doors are at the base with a scalloped apron beneath. In studying various patterns and designs of the gold transfer work, I have not seen this pattern before. Also, the mirror attaches with two sticks that fit snuggly in the two holes on the back of the marble top. I find the mirror itself quite interesting in its shape which I feel is early. A fine piece of furniture for a special room
